Have you checked you connectivity? – Mitch Jul 25 '12 at 11:03
Using a download manager may solve your problem – Anwar Shah Jul 25 '12 at 11:08

We can't tell what the problem is - there's not enough information, what are you using to download it?

If you keep getting the same issue try using a torrent download instead - that will pickup where it left off if you lose connectivity.

Torrent download links can be found here -

Please try the torrent download for your chosen release instead:
